Upon receiving the decision made by the Accountability Board at the Accountability Board Case Review, the Accused Student has the right to submit a written appeal of the decision based on:

  1. Due Process, meaning how the university failed to follow the stated process for the adjudication of the charge and how that affected the decision

  2. New Evidence, meaning evidence that was not available or accessible to the Accused Student at the time of the Accountability Board Case Review

The appeal must be submitted in writing to the Office of Student Accountability within seven business days of receiving the Accountability Board's decision at the Accountability Board Case Review. The Director of the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices will determine if an Appeal Review by a new board will be granted.

For more information on the Appeal Process, see Appealing a Decision in the JMU Student Handbook.
